Course code: WEB-24
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
I had a TRS-80 and an apple IIe as a kid. Designed/programmed a medical claims entry system using the PCjr. Wrote a children's animated ABCs for the C64. All that was decades ago. Gave up programming to become a mechanical engineer, which I enjoy. 3 years ago I stepped back, part time, into the programming role.
Test practice now:
ARM & AVR uCs
sublime, GCC, AVRDude,
Self imposed, following google's style guide for c++
Function too long:
If it takes more than a 'page' of code, or if it takes more than a few minutes to understand what it does.
Weekly, peers outside the company, using zoom.
Favorite thing about dev:
Bringing an idea to life.
Least favorite thing about dev:
When things get non-deterministic. I don't mind a good challenge, I hate looking at the same line of code until I realize that the previous programmer forgot to use one more set of parenthesis.
I read your book, twice. Did the exercises a few times. Tried to go further but most to the information I found on the web isn't for embedded TDD.
Why are you attending:
I hate debugging code, especially my own.
